Fluminense vs Cruzeiro
Brazil Serie A
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Giulite Coutinho.
Fluminense returned to the winning ways on Sunday evening when they claimed points from the visit to Coritiba.
Tricolor will be hoping to build on the fine display in mid-week’s round, but they will have a very tough task to take the full pray against Cruzeiro who have been in particularly good touch in the recent days.
The hosts stopped the negative run of three consecutive games without a victory at the weekend.
The success is even greater for Abel Braga and his men if we know that they have done it without theirs tar man Henrique Dourado who is expected to be back with the team on Thursday evening.
Richarlison and Leo were on target to give Tricolor a two-goal cushion to which they managed to hold ion all up until the end of the match.
The visitors have been enjoying a hot run of form in the final third lately as Cruzeiro took seven points from last three league outings.
Mano Menezes can be thrilled with such record knowing that his team had a very tough schedule facing the likes of Palmeiras, Atletico PR and Flamengo.
